Discussion

Background

On April 10, 2007, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a notice of availability of proposed design criteria. The notice was published for public comment on May 3, 2007 (72 FR 24656). Comments to that document were due by June 4, 2007. By verbal request, an entity involved in the airship design industry asked the FAA to extend the comment period for the proposed design criteria.

We appreciate the petitioner's substantive interest in the proposed design standards and believe that granting additional time to review the document will allow them to thoroughly assess the impact of the design criteria and provide meaningful comments. Therefore, we will reopen the comment period until August 15, 2007.

Reopening of Comment Period

For the reasons provided in this notice, we believe that good cause exists for reopening the comment period for the proposed design criteria until August 15, 2007. Absent unusual circumstances, the FAA does not anticipated any further extension of the comment period for the design criteria.
